Come, Follow Me Activities

For home evening or scripture study—or just for fun!

Walk in His Footsteps

Child tracing foot

For Mosiah 4–6

King Mosiah kept the commandments and “did walk in the ways of the Lord” (Mosiah 6:6). On a piece of paper, trace your foot and cut out the shape. Write on your footprint a way you can follow Jesus. Put your footprint where you can remember to follow Jesus Christ’s example.

Follow the Prophet

For Mosiah 7–10

Ammon taught that prophets can see things to come (see Mosiah 8:16–17). Turn to page 2 to read President Nelson’s message from general conference. What did he teach us? Draw a picture about it and send it to us at the Friend.

A Light in the Dark

Children with flashlights

For Mosiah 11–17

Abinadi taught that Jesus Christ is “a light that is endless, that can never be darkened” (Mosiah 16:9). Hide an object in the house. Turn off the lights and have everyone try to find it in the dark. Then hide the object and try to find it with the lights on or with flashlights. Which way was easier? How does Jesus help us like the light helped you?

Hearts Knit in Unity

Children with paper hearts

For Mosiah 18–24

Alma taught us to have our “hearts knit together in unity and in love” (Mosiah 18:21). That means we should work together and show love to others. Make a string of hearts to remind you! Cut out some paper hearts and write a family member’s name on each one. Poke a hole in each heart and put a string through them so the hearts are connected. Hang up your string of hearts where you will see it often!
